On Monday afternoon I enjoyed a relaxed and very tasty treat with my Mum, her friend and a couple of my sisters. We headed to Beverley to Patisserie Valerie where we enjoyed a rather yummy afternoon tea together. I love days like these and find them such a bonus of being a stay at home mum. With such a flexible schedule, it’s so nice some weeks to have little treats and afternoons out together.
June the 15th is both Mum and my youngest sisters birthday and each year we look for ways to celebrate with the girls! This year Mum specifically loved the idea of afternoon tea and so after finding a great little deal on Groupon, we decided to go for it.
I have never been to Patisserie Valerie before, but have heard wonderful things. I had high hopes and wasn’t at all disappointed with the taste, service and all round relaxed atmosphere. The decor is lovely and the presentation too. Alice joined us and was presented with her very own little babyccino, whilst we enjoyed refill hot chocolates and a stand oozing with yummy things. We had mini quiches, chicken, pesto and sundried tomato sandwiches, as well as old faves like egg, cucumber, smoked salmon and cream cheese, and ham!
The scones were delicious too with an array of jams and clotted cream, as well as the choice of fruit or plain! And then came the final layer – the mini cakes and fresh cream delights. It was all so lovely and anything we didn’t eat, they bagged up for us to take home.
For £19 for 2 people it was both a bargainous and a most lovely afternoon out with Mum and some of my sisters. It was chilled and just fantastic to do something a little bit different together to celebrate their birthdays!
On the morning of I was wondering “what does one wear?” … I knew that whilst Patisserie Valerie is rather nice, it didn’t warrant going over the top and so kept it smart casual! They all dressed up with pretty tops, jeans and nice shoes (thanks for the memo guys) but I kept my look more chilled with a black slogan T Shirt from H&M – “We Are Strong” (£3 in the sale) and my stripe trousers from New Look (a freebie from my sister in law). I dressed my look up with my DP tassel earrings that Mr Smith bought me last year from my birthday and felt my smart cas look was just right!
I loved our little afternoon ladies outing and would love to go again for lunch or a little treat! It would make the prefect date destination or a catch up with special friends. I always love the days I can get together with my sisters – especially when it involves cakes and fancy things!
